Astrid Jones copes with her small town's gossip and narrow-mindedness by staring at the sky and imagining that she's sending love to the passengers in the airplanes flying high over her backyard. Maybe they'll know what to do with it. Maybe it'll make them happy. Maybe they'll need it. Her mother doesn't want it, her father's always stoned, her perfect sister's too busy trying to fit in, and the people in her small town would never allow her to love the person she really wants to: another girl named Dee. There's no one Astrid feels she can talk to about this deep secret or the profound questions that she's trying to answer. But little does she know just how much sending her love--and asking the right questions--will affect the passengers' lives, and her own, for the better.In this unmistakably original portrayal of a girl struggling to break free of society's boxes and definitions, Printz Honor author A.S. King asks readers to question everything--and offers hope to those who will never stop seeking and sharing real love.

Whatever I write here for my review will not give this book the justice it deserves. I listened to this book as I made my way down the road and then sometimes I sat just waiting in my car for that “one more chapter” to finish up, as I just couldn’t leave my new adopted family and go about my life un...

I did enjoy reading this, but I wasn't totally blown away by this book. Astrid Jones lives in a small town with her controlling workaholic mother, not-so-secretly pot smoking father, and her little sister who seems to fit in perfectly in this town that Astrid hates so much. Astrid likes to lie dow...

I liked this book, but it would have been so much better if the author had decided to make Astrid bisexual. I actually thought that might have been what was going to happen. She spent the entire book being very unsure of her sexuality, and when people asked her if she was a lesbian she would tell th...
